Eyeshadow,  Swatches

Sephora Collection Single Eyeshadow Swatches

Let’s swatch the Sephora Colorful shadows, sold individually for $9 (but often on sale for $6)! One thing that’s great about this line of eyeshadows is that they offer four different finishes: Matte, Shimmer, Glitter, and Metal. They have about 75 shades available (heavy on the neutrals), and we’ll be looking at 25 of them today.

These are the shades we’ll be swatching today:

Shades include: 204 Under The Cover, 257 No Place Like Home, 281 Satin Corset, 362 Twinkle Twinkle, 225 Morning Freshness, 257 No Place Like Home, 365 Glazed Donut, 232 Girl Talk, 378 Soft Suede, 08 Shock Choc, 29 First Light, 02 Milky Way, 332 Flawless, 297 Choco Excess, 375 Semi-sweet Chocolate, 206 Secret Budoir, 351 Golden Marshmallow, 328 Natural Beauty, 285 Tahitian Pearl, 329 Be Chic, 31 Demanding, 292 Hollywood Calling, 282 My Dear Nude, 327 Sand Dunes, 299 Coffee Break

The formula on these is a bit thinner than brands such as Sydney Grace or Natasha Denona which tend to feel thicker. But the quality is still very nice and there’s a large variety to choose from.

Swatches – Mattes

Swatches – Darker Shimmers

This set of shimmers/glitters is darker than the first set. I accidentally included a couple shades that I believe are now discontinued: Tahitian Pearl and Be Chic

Swatches – Metal

Next swatch photo shows the four metal effect shades together along with two glitter shades that I thought would be good for comparison. The shades First Light and Demanding do have some sparkle rather than a smooth metallic finish even though they are defined as Metal finish by Sephora.

Packaging

These come in individual plastic containers (which seem a bit excessive and wasteful, honestly). Normally when I buy single shadows from other brands they come in a cardboard sleeve. I suspect Sephora’s packaging is geared towards consumers who might only buy a few shadows. We’re not living that life here at Stef’s Edge. We’re removing the shadows from their plastic prison and homing them in magnetic palettes where they can all be friends.

Sephora Collection Colorful shadow packaging how to depot

If you just open the top lid, you can use the eyeshadow without removing it from the package. If you want to depot it, you just have to open the bottom section and lift it right out. There are little notches in the side to open whichever section you want.

    I like your comment about the packaging and depotting haha. It’s nice that they made it easy to remove though and I didn’t expect the swatches to look so nice! Good to know!

      I think Sephora has really improved these shadows over the past few years. I don’t remember them being this good a few years back.
